Questions about Army and Marines info

My 10 year experience in the US military showed me that the unit you are assigned to makes more of a difference than branch or even MOS. As a forward observer, my day-to-day military life was completely different when I served in a cav unit in West Germany, when I served in a mech infantry unit in Louisiana, and when I served in an armored battalion in Kansas.
I know there are specialities that the Marines develop that regular Army doesn't, but there are also Rangers, SF, and even Navy SEAL's who handle a lot of special missions. I do believe that Marines serve a primary security on US embassies around the world.
I'm sure you'll get some good pointers from folks around here.
If you're going through hell . . . keep going.

Sorry, this topic has been done before. Take a look...there is a lot of good info in it to help you with your question. Please post any additional questions in that thread.
There is also a huge amount of info on the Marines and the Army in seperate threads. Look around in the "Joining the Military? Basic Training and Military Service Questions" Forum
